What's the best 3 piece golf ball?

MG Golf has a ball that produces the same or better spin characteristics as a Pro V1 for $20/dozen new. A few days after I heard about this ball, I found one playing, finished the round with it, it performed quite well.
It isn't the $20 dollar ball but it is sl long lasting the cost is cheaper unless you loose many which is when I have to pull a new one (which thankfully isn't very often now days). Take a look at 3UPgolf.com. Rob's a great guy and donates a $1 for every dozen sold.
Good luck on your search for the ball for you.
The NXT Tour is the ball I've played all season before bumping up to the ProV1x range last weekend for the first time. It's really a terrific ball. As an alternative, the ball I would buy if I were buying balls, would be the Callaway Hex Control balls from Costco. They play as well as the NXT Tour, but for a fraction of the price. Both really react well around the greens and on approach shots. Not as amazing as the ProV1x, but close enough. It's so much fun to not have to play for roll outs from chips using Velocity style rocks. Enjoy!
FWIW, the new Srixon AD333 Tour is a pretty damned good ball. Been using them quite a bit this Summer. 3-piece, great price point, urethane cover. Spin for approach and short game is excellent (albeit not at, for example, ProV1 level) and it feels really nice off the putter. Very white, doesn't fade and fantastic cover resilience as well. Quite possibly a 'keeper' for me.
Now THAT'S a smart ball!
Reminds me of another great invention......the Thermos Bottle. Keeps hot things hot, and cold things cold......but how does it know?!
